Jabs have "no significance on severe illness"* go fund someone else* another medical emergency* Independent Sage guilty of misinformation

IN news that will shock very few people capable of independent thinking, a professor at an Israeli hospital says the vaccines have “no significance regarding severe illness” with 80 per cent of serious Covid cases in the fully jabbed.
Professor Yaakov Jerris, director of Ichilov Hospital’s coronavirus ward, told Channel 13 News: “Right now, most of our severe cases are vaccinated. They had at least three injections. Between 70 and 80 per cent of the serious cases are vaccinated. So, the vaccine has no significance regarding severe illness, which is why just 20 to 25 per cent of our patients are unvaccinated.”
“Defining a serious patient is problematic. For example, a patient with a chronic lung disease always had a low level of oxygen, but now he has a positive coronavirus test result which technically makes him a ‘serious coronavirus patient,’ but that’s not accurate. The patient is only in a difficult condition because he has a serious underlying illness.”
THE American crowdfunding platform GoFundMe was embroiled in controversy today after initially confiscating $9million raised by supporters of the Canadian truckers protest – before backtracking and promising automatic refunds.
GoFundMe claims they were reacting to reports from police, who say there have been incidents of violence, and have subsequently removed the Freedom Convoy fundraiser from their platform.
They initially announced they would issue refunds only to those who applied and redistribute the remaining funds to what they called “approved charities”.
But a public backlash saw them quickly backtrack and GoFundMe issued a further statement saying they would now process automatic refunds for everyone who donated.
Ottawa Police even tweeted their praise for such a dystopian move: “We want to thank GoFundMe for listening to our concerns as a city and a police service. The decision to withhold funding for these unlawful demonstrations is an important step and we call on all crowdfunding sites to follow.”
The protests are not in fact unlawful, however, and much coverage continues to be ignored by the mainstream media. It is almost as if Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wants them silenced and smeared.

MISINFORMATION is something many assume people will be assued of when they disagree with the Government.
But it appears Independent Sage are more than capable of pumping out their own propaganda. Luckily Jamie Jenkins, former head of health/job stats at the Office for Nations Statisitics, is ready to call them out.
This time is was broadcaster and Independent Sage member, Professor Alice Roberts, who tweeted incorrect statistics on the number of child Covid deaths, claiming 136 children had died in the UK since the start of the pandemic.
In his usual calm and collected manner, Jenkins deals with it perfectly. On his blog, he says: “Between March 2020 and December 2021 there were 39 deaths registered in children aged 0 to 15 with Covid as the cause of the death, with a further 10 where it was not the primary cause but a factor in the death. Extending the age group to 0 to 17, the numbers are 50 and 12, respectively.
“With a following of over 350k on Twitter and a Professor, you would expect her to check the data before misinforming people. But Independent Sage has continually scared the public with doomsday scenarios that have regularly failed to happen. She is a parent, and no doubt cares about children, but when looking at interventions to protect their health, you also need to look at the data accurately. To make informed choices, parents need to have facts, and not ones that mislead, be that deliberate or not.
“Medics are misrepresenting death statistics because of Covid in children and this misinformation instills fear in parents. To inflate the numbers to make the situation seem worse, they are including adults aged 18 and 19.”
QUESTION OF THE DAY
Graham Morton works as an agency payroll officer for the NHS in Carlisle. Like thousands of others, he received a letter warning him he would be sacked if he wasn’t vaccinated by April 1. But Graham works from home 100 per cent and does not come into contact with patients or any other health workers. Please can someone explain why he is being threatened with no jab, no job?
